Spears hasn’t been officially confirmed to be joining the X Factor judging panel, but it sounds as if Simon Cowell is very interested.
Simon spoke with Kbig-FM radio host Billy Bush, saying he is “fascinated” by the star, adding, “‘The fact that she’s still one of the most talked-about – not just popstars, but people in the world today – means that you’ve got this star power”.
Britney has had a troubled past, but the X Factor mogul feels she is a true survivor.
Simon said of Spears, “This girl’s got resilience and the fact that she’s survived this and she’s still hot, she’s still having hit records and she’s still controversial… there’s a reason for that”.
Cowell was asked if he thought Britney was a good choice for X Factor, he replied, “I would think that if she’s managed to sustain in her family life a career which is tough, this is a walk in the park”.
Simon recently axed host Steve Jones and judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
Insiders report Cowell wants Britney and Janet Jackson to join himself and L.A Reid on the judging panel.
